My guitar workshop NYDE Guitars was established in November 2008.,The first instruments were finished in 2009, the following summer. The first 12 years the workshop was located in the heart of Ekenäs, Raseborg, Finland. In March 2020 I moved the workshop to Hernesaari, Helsinki.

I build both my own designs and some classic models. I build my guitars mainly of Finnish wood, such as alder, maple and flamed birch, but sometimes I use exotic woods in fretboards and by recycling old furniture. All wood used is carefully selected and crafted for optimal sound qualities, playability and looks. Most of my builds are equipped with pickups of my own manufacture.

If I build a guitar as a special order, the client can select among other things the model, a top with straight or flamed grain pattern, the colour of the wooden parts, hardware & plastic parts colours, pickup types and the wiring mode. All my guitars and basses have a 3-year guarantee.

All guitars shown on this site are for sale, if not otherwise stated. Prototypes and instruments that have been in use for a lengthy period of time can be purchased for a lot less than the list prices.
